I considered this question when trying to decide between having a new PC built and switching over to Mac with the new iMacs. I read so many bad impressions with that company that I would not order from them. When spending this kind of money on something I'd rather not trust a company that has had plenty of problems.

their website honestly looks worse than some of the projects we made in my freshman year web development class...

They have been around almost as long as Alienware (before Dell bought them out) but they aren't known for well built computers.
Not saying it is crap but there are other options I would purchase a PC from.
A good friend of mine bought one a year ago from ibuypower and the power supply and video card died within 6 months, before that he had one I built him in '03. Things can go wrong with any manufacturer but like someone else mentioned they wanted him to ship the entire PC back to them to diagnose but wanted him to pay for shipping when we had already switched PSU's and found that was the problem.
He just ate the cost of the PSU because it ended up less than shipping, with the video card they told him it would be anywhere from 6-10 week turn around for diagnosing and replacing the video card, so he paid for that out of pocket as well and will be buying from somewhere else next time.

If I'm going to buy a PC then I'll build it myself. I wouldn't trust ibuypower, alienware, dell, hp, asus or whatever.
I'll rather do the research of components myself and build the entire thing by myself.

these are all good parts and for the most part the will smoke most macs.I do not build hackintosh builds myself.
you can build cheaper then these or spend more money.
some people want really pretty cases. (ie costly) ,
but for 1300 you can have a very powerful piece of gear in under a few hours time.
